Bright lemon yellow in colour with gold tints.

On the nose intense aromas of apricot, peach and ripe lemon citrus friut combine with a mineral, sea-salt tang.

The palate is rich, honeyed and textured, balanced by wonderful acidity and a long, complex, mineral finish.

Producer Information

Thomas Bachelder will be known to many of our customers as the first winemaker at Le Clos Jordanne. He has now gone out on his own, together with his wife, Mary Delaney.

In their first vintage in 2009, they made three Chardonnays from three different regions - Burgundy, Niagara and Oregon. Using the same winemaking techniques in each region (wild yeasts, minimal intervention and the same barrel makers), the difference in the wines is solely down to the vineyard which makes for some very interesting blind tasting results. The Niagara Chardonnay is particularly fresh and lifted with aromas of white stone fruits, whereas the Orgeon Chardonnay shows a more robust, honeyed character.
